The Rejection Garden is less about rejection,
and more about creativity, persistence, and joy.
Over the next month, I am going to share one Tree or Manuscript with you, not in its entirety,
instead, I’ll post a synopsis, how many times it has been rejected, and then,
THE BOX AND THE BEAN
First in line this year and, Bea was scared.
She must be brave, show no fear, everyone was watching.
IT, was just a box, plane and black… possibly even empty.
“No liquid potions. No tarantulas (rules forbade it).”
Blindfold on. Bea hoped that it wouldn’t… bite.
Last year’s ooey, gooey “Mystery Trickery Box” had been fun, messy but harmless. But this year…
Bea moved her fingertips through the opening.
Harmless cotton cobwebs, slimy peeled grapes, messy pasta… she hoped.
It was small, smooth…
And done! No bites or mess…
Now, to plot next year’s revenge.
